4/10 Fair

I stayed here twice. I loved seeing the lions nearby. The restaurant is fairly good, but service is very slow. Order dinner 1-2 hours prior to when you want to eat. Rooms are spare with spartan bathrooms. I booked through Expedia and prepaid for lodging. When I checked out, I was charged again for the lodging. Repeated calls were made to the Lodge to get them to acknowledge their error. I asked to have the charges for lodging reversed but they wouldn't do it. I finally had to dispute the credit card charge when I got home. There may be better choices for lodging in the Ghanzi area.

Okay but not more.
It was okay, but not more than that. A bit too expensive for what you get. We have before stayed at the Kalahari Arms Hotel. It was cheaper but a better total experience. We had to ask for towels, bed lamps was not working. Room was small. Pool not clean. Pictures looked better than reality. Staff was friendly and helpful.
